On the Road Again

We left Portland Wednesday morning after spending nearly a month in the Northwest. We will try and publish a overview with a few pictures in the coming days.

We spent Wednesday night in Sutherlin, Oregon at an Escapees Park. We had our mail sent there and we needed to pick it up before moving on. After checking in at the park, we drove down to the post office and our package was there waiting for us.

Thursday morning we headed south on I-5 planning to spend the night between Sacramento and San Francisco. But a half an hour into our journey, we realized that we didn't need to rush through Northern California, and we made the decision to head to the coast instead. We picked up 199 at Grants Pass and it was a beautiful trip down through the coastal mountains to Crescent City, Ca. We continued south on 101 and spent the night at a little campground south of Garberville, Ca.

This morning we drove for 3 hours down to Santa Rosa. The weather is beautiful and we plan on staying here for a few days before moving on south to Paso Robles. We love the Napa Valley area and we're staying in a wonderful campground at the Santa Rosa Fairgrounds. And the price is great, only 10 dollars a night.
